 It's a few hours to Valentine's Day and I am sitting in bed watching one of my favourite shows - This Is Us. Its on love, life and family. 
Long story short, its amazing and you all should watch it.

Through the crazy years of life, one important lesson I've learnt is love for one's self. I know, it sounds like a cliche thing to say because I am single and even more single on valentines day. I know!
But, I grew up learning its importance in so many life lessons.

Self-love, to love yourself unapologetically and unconditionally. To embrace your beauty, set loving boundaries for yourself, acknowledge your needs and going for the things that truly matters to you and brings you joy.

The journey of self -love is never easy. What journey is? But, it is worth it.
Carry it with you.

Happy Valentines Day, I hope its a day full of love from everyone that matters to you. 
Show some love today and always.
We all need it.

Thanks to BelleBar-Organic for the Havanna Body Scrub!

Catch you later.

 February is here!
and so is Black History Month!

Celebrating everything about being and living BLACK!
My chocolate skin , My kinky curls, My jackson 5 nostrils, My huge lips.

Everything that makes me BLACK!
I love being black, and wish to be nothing other than myself.
God creates nothing but beauty.
I am beauty.

Excited to be in a month where Blackness can we celebrated in every single day.
February can go as slow as it wants.
Our beauty, our talents, our gifts, our presence should always be celebrated and embraced.

A Fresh Start

 It is a New Year, full of so many great opportunities.

Just a quick recap of 2016: 
I was consumed by the hectic life of a law student which meant I felt disconnected from everything and went into an emotional cycle of anger and sadness. I know, not the best point in my life.
But, by God's grace I passed my Bar exams and now I am officially a Barrister & Solicitor of The Supreme Court of Justice, here in Nigeria. Yayyy!
Catch up with the moment on Youtube, I vlogged the experience. Nothing like hard work paying off!

You would think after the hustle and bustle of Law school, I would take a break from any strenous activity. Trust me not to be any wiser, haha, I ended up taking this job offer that was great at first but became such a burden because I had not taken time to relax after law school.

There is always a positive side to things, no matter what, the job taught me how creative I was and how much I had grown creatively from just picking up a camera a few years to start off Youtube.

In my deep depression, I reevaluated my life and discovered I had settled so much for the life I did not want and I was being pulled in a different direction than intended because I was not focusing on MY goals!
This ignited a fire in me to change the direction of my life and now I can proudly say I will be studying Fashion Design at The prestigious Parsons School of Design, in New York!! eeeeekk!!! I am superrr excited, slightly nervous, but I am so ready for it. More than ready, if you count the fact that I bought my first sewing machine in 2013. I announced the move on Youtube, of course!
I started a gofundme to raise some funds, so far so good! Grateful to those that have donated.

 It is 2017, and I am sooo ready!
Looking forward to achieving so much and being open to a lot of things.

Happy New Year & I hope 2017 is a great one for everyone!
